Endovenous Laser Treatment, or EVLT, is a minimally invasive procedure designed to address various vascular issues. By utilizing laser energy, this technique precisely targets and treats problematic veins, offering a less invasive alternative to traditional surgical interventions. 

This innovative procedure is particularly effective in treating conditions such as varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency. EVLT works by delivering laser energy directly into the affected vein, causing it to close and rerouting blood flow to healthier veins. This not only alleviates symptoms but also prevents potential complications associated with untreated vascular issues.

The Procedure

At Cardiac Care Associates, our experienced cardiology team ensures that every EVLT procedure is conducted with precision and care. The process begins with a thorough evaluation of the patient's medical history and a comprehensive examination to determine the suitability for EVLT. Once deemed appropriate, the patient undergoes a simple outpatient procedure.

Under local anesthesia, a thin laser fiber is inserted into the targeted vein through a small incision. Guided by ultrasound imaging, the laser energy is then delivered, causing the vein to close. Patients often report minimal discomfort during the procedure, and the outpatient nature allows them to resume their daily activities shortly after.

Indications for Endovenous Laser Treatment

EVLT is recommended for individuals experiencing symptoms such as leg pain, swelling, or discoloration associated with vascular issues. Our cardiology team assesses each case individually, considering factors such as the severity of symptoms and the overall health of the patient.

Ideal candidates for EVLT may have varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency, or other venous disorders that impact their quality of life. The procedure offers a targeted and effective solution, providing relief from symptoms while promoting better vascular health.
